Just Add Milk is an online boutique run by mum of four Vicky Ansett. Stocking a delightful array of eclectic nursery decor, baby and toddler clothes, gifts and essentials from across the globe. Just Add Milk only stock items that are ethical and original, and quality is of high priority to ensure each keepsake can be treasured by you and your little one.
Vicky always dreamed of owning her own shop, and from the age of 17 started running a vintage décor pop-up stall. She had her first child at 25 and two months later was on a plane bound for a new life in Singapore with her husband. In 2015, now a mother of four, Vicky moved back to the UK and relocated to Cheltenham in 2018. Once her children had settled; two had left home and the younger two who both have additional needs were in suitable schools, Vicky decided it was time to revisit her dream of owning a shop.
Cheltenham was full of families and everyone seemed to be expecting. She spent many a morning hanging out in her local coffee shop Baker & Graze researching. Vicky has always had a passion for interiors, and also loved all things baby – so she decided to combine the two and Just Add Milk was born. Bringing quality, ethical goods that are not mass produced and not easily found on the high street was important, along with wanting to support other small businesses along the journey. Vicky wanted to be able to make customers feel special in this exciting time of their life. The stage of pregnancy can be full of difficulties emotionally and physically, but nesting is also really exciting.
In October 2018 Vicky opened a pop-up on Bath Road in Cheltenham until January 2019. The business then moved online, but still appears around Cheltenham and surrounding areas regularly at a variety of pop-up events. Most recently at the delightful Wonderland Pop-Up in Cheltenham alongside a number of other independent children’s brands. Just Add Milk stocks a beautiful collection of décor and must-haves from around the world, and each one can be found in their online boutique. With an eye for statement pieces, many with a popular Scandi edge, you’ll find a delightful array of pastels and keepsakes that make the perfect gift for a new baby. Whether you are shopping for your own child’s nursery, or looking for that perfect gift, you are sure to find something special at Just Add Milk.
